    I think were all addicted lol mine depends on the project. Im doing a black, blue and grey ricky tims quilt for my son, a New Mexico quilt so I have been on the lookout for southwest (where I'm from), I'm doing several fall themed quilts so I'm always on the lookout for fall colors cotton and batiks. Marbled solids is my number one of what I'm trying to collect, never have enough!! Thanks for the thread it's been fun to read!

    All of them for me. My GFs in my quilting group have favorites that we each look out for. Sandals, cooking tools, frogs, dog kennels, Christmas stockings and tractors. A fat quarter here and there brings a great big hug - well worth it.

    Well let's see: Florals, greens, 30's, Kaufman fusions and batiks are what I am drawn to at the moment.
    Happy Quilting.

    Fabrics with tropical fish. Those with dachshunds also draw my eye, if not my pocketbook.

    Teapots and cups
    Woodland and outdoor theme for my husband's quilt I have promised him for 10 years. The reason I use for going shopping at different shops in search of the perfect fabric (which is never there). Lol

    FLAMINGOS!!! lol...and they must be very popular, because it is extremely hard to find fabric with them on...My family will buy anything (within reason) with flamingos on it. Trying to start a quilt with flamingo "I spy" but need to find a few more....gives me something to do in my spare time....yea right....

    Good question, it's fascinating to see what people look for. I'm obsessed with dots and birds. From reading blogs I see that fabric with words on it is hot right now but I haven't dipped my toe into that pool yet.

    every place i go, i look for black and white and white and black...no shades of grey or any fabric that comes off as grey. i haven't duplicated anything even though my collection is very large. i think it is time to use them! maybe another arrow quilt - now that i have learned the mistakes that can occur!

    I'm always attracted to purples, blues and greens...Love fabrics with Hydrangeas, and I am looking for a polarfleece fabric with a foxhunting theme to make a present for a friend. Can't find something like that anywhere.

    Asian Fabric mostly.
    Currently I am on the look out for Farmer's Market prints with veggies, and fruits for my latest landscape project.
    Believe, it can be done!

    Elephants! I love elephants, so I love to sneak them in somewhere.

    I'm also drawn to bright modern colors. I tend to look more at color than at the print (unless it has a trunk and four giant feet....)

    Currently I'm into Asian fabrics and batiks. Although, I do have a weakness for Halloween fabric. I have a whole bunch of it and have yet to make something with it. I think that's gonna change this fall.

    Reds of all sorts, 30's anything I can use for Sunbonnet Sue. Anyone know where I can find fabrics with Bull Dogs? DD loves them and Haven't seen any with only Bull dogs.

    I love browns, yellows, and greens. I recently noticed that I didn't have any blues so now I gravitate toward them. The only things I don't go for are Holiday prints and children's prints. I make children's quilts just not with novelty fabric.

    Going through some boxes the other day, I ran across some OMGWWUT (ohmygoodnesswhatwereyouthinking) fabric. I'll just have to cut it up small. REAL SMALL
